The structure and development of the seminiferous follicle in Scyliorhinus caniculus and Torpedo marmorata (Elasmobranchii)


A light microscopic and phase-contrast study of the developing seminiferous follicles in two elasmobranch species was made. After an initial period of independent mitotic divisions, each spermatogonium becomes entirely surrounded by a cytoplasmic extension of a single follicle cell (Sertoli cell). These bicellular units may be termed spermatocysts. This… (More)
